IFA Redfish Tour – Steinhatchee, Florida | March 7th 2020
ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (March 10 2020) - Team Suzuki Repower’s Captain Travis Yaeckel and his partner Josh Corr topped a talented field of professional tournament anglers to secure a fourth-place finish in the (IFA) Inshore Fishing Association Redfish hosted in Steinhatchee, Florida.
At first light on Saturday March 7th, 115 teams set out from Sea Hag Marina in search of the heaviest pair of slot (18-27”) Redfish they could catch using only artificial lures.
Extreme North winds brought cooler temperatures and coupled with a low tide left many areas without water for most of the day.
The team was able to put together a productive plan and depend on previous successes in the area to find and catch quality fish based on the conditions. They went with their instinct and setup in a location they predicted the fish would travel through as the tide came back in.
As hoped, the plan prevailed and they were able to capitalize by catching a good number of fish and ultimately bringing a pair (2) of heavy upper-slot Redfish to the scales.
It was a decision of ounces and the split between the top teams was close. A combined weight of 15.10lbs was good enough for a fourth-place finish with the winners weighing in at 15.45lbs.
The team is looking forward to keeping their momentum going into the next event in May held in Crystal River, Florida where they will qualify for the 2-day Championship in Houma, Louisiana in October and chase down the divisional Team of the Year.
